Abstract

As important fundamental equipment, high voltage switchgears are widely used in electric power systems and directly relative to the power reliability and quality. Partial discharge (PD) online monitoring is one of the most effective methods used for insulation testing and diagnosis in high voltage switchgears and power systems. This paper proposes a unique ultra-wide-band (UWB) antenna with high performance for PD ultra-high-frequency (UHF) detection in high voltage switchgears. Actual PD experiments were carried out, and the designed antenna was used for PD measurements. The measured results demonstrate that the proposed antenna has wide work frequency band, good omnidirectional radiation patterns and appreciable gain, which indicate that the proposed antenna is suitable for UHF online monitoring of PDs in high voltage switchgears.
